Using GPIO pins under Ubuntu?

Joymaker New Member Posts: 1

I am trying to use the GPIO pins in python under Ubuntu. One part of the wiki suggested that that might be supported, but then the Rpi.GPIO page says:

This library is only supported for Ubilinux OS. The Ubuntu support is coming

I tried downloading the gpiod Python package. When I try to use it, I get an error 22 as soon as I try to open any line. And I'm running as root, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Has anybody found something that works? Or is this simply a dead end as far as Ubuntu is concerned?
